Webinar for Healthcare Professionals: Exploring Hospice Care

Exploring Hospice Care Continuing Education | VITAS Healthcare

Some 80% of Americans would prefer to die at home. Hospice makes that happen - lengthening the continuum of care, eliminating futile trips to the ED and reducing hospital readmissions. Hospice helps patients and families make the transition from hospital to home, from curative care to palliative. Hospice allows your patients to die in comfort and dignity, surrounded by the people they love.

Earn one continuing education hour with this free webinar. Exploring Hospice Care shows how hospice provides timely, quality end-of-life care to terminally ill patients and their families and how healthcare professionals can identify hospice-appropriate patients.
